Found at The Similepedia Blog; I believe the photo was taken in Romania. (Multumesc = thank you)

muah ha hah ha! I love photos that show the modern world as a confab of almost diametrical opposites.
I am using that as my wallpaper until something more fun comes along. thanks for posting it.
It’s an amusing picture, and quite a comment on Eastern Europe and the Balkans. However, having lived for some time in Romania, I wonder whether it really was taken there. Collar harness is almost unknown in Romania, where the Hungarian-stype breastcollar harness is almost universal. (I suppose that a Romanian might have bought a collar abroad, or been given one by a foreigner.) Also, Romania has just shortsightedly banned horses on main roads and in towns, so I doubt whether the police (usually all too quick to harrass the peasants) would have allowed a cart anywhere near a McDonald’s (whose Romanian outlets are all urban). I’d be tempted to guess that the photo may have been taken in the Ukraine. However, the photographer presumably knows where he or she took the picture. It will be interesting to learn more.
lol! Nice… Well if gas prices keep rising like they have been I might have to resort to this myself:)
Now, THAT’S a Happy Meal. 😉

I just voted for your blog for Bloggers Choice Awards.
Would you please return the favor at:
I live in Wensleydale and the other week we couldn’t get anywhere because the country roads were blocked up with gypsy caravans on their way to Appleby Horse Fair. Although the brightly coloured carriages were beautiful, I couldn’t help getting a little bit exasperated at how the guys were walking alongside the horses. Walking pace doesn’t get anyone anywhere very quickly. However, it is cool when you don’t need a registration plate.
Horses and carts can currently be seen on most Romanian roads
Do the Amish eat at McDonald’s now?
What an interesting blog! I am glad that i ran across it. A fellow down the road from us was featured in the paper as he often rides his horse to town, hitching it at the back of the store. We used to ride our horses to the “root beer stand”, but that was many moons ago.
Отлично!!! Вместо книги на ночь.
thats the funniest thing i have ever seen Romania the land where the past clashes with the present in a beautiful collision
That picture made me smile; I hope you don’t mind – I emailed this link to a few of my friends who I know will love it.
gives new meaning to “sit down and ride” 🙂
Quite an attention getting image there! haha! Btw, I love horses and your blog interests me! You’re now on my blogroll. *thumbs up*
Come by anytime!

This has got to be one of the funniest pictures I’ve ever happened to come across, How many of us would could say that we honestly wouldn’t love to do that!
That is such a cute picture 🙂
Now THAT’S a photo! 🙂

Hey there! You have an impressive amount of blogs on your blog list. Would you be able to add mine? I write a blog called ‘A Girl and Her Horse’. I have added you to my blog list.
What a great photo! Interesting blog, have enjoyed browsing through it.
Oh man…that is hilarious! Great photo. Thanks for sharing.
LOL that was pretty hilarious, thanks for the pic.
I love this picture! Thank You for sharing! Great blog!
McDonald’s is everywhere!! The picture might have been staged to show the color contrasts between new and bright and old and drab.
Best wishes for 2010 !
Too Funny! I was in Pennsyvania Amish country a few years back and got a kick out of the “Buggy Parking” at Wal-Mart.
Love the blog…keep up the good work!
That’s awesome a friend of mine had a menonite fellow fix his fence and he showed up with horse and buggy.
That is just too funny.
Quite looks like being taken in Romania, however, brilliant photo! :))
Just found your blog – great blog overall. Love this pic – makes us smile. A smile every few minutes does us all good. Well done.
You have to send that photo to Mc Donalds marketing dept., it s fantastic !!
I am getting this feeling you like horses. Haha! You should meet my one friend. Every second word she says has something to do with horses. You two would get along great! Nice post btw!
Enjoy your day!
That’s a great pic! I love the irony of the old and traditional verses the new and modern.
What a funny photo, those who have a horse and a cart just have a try, lol.
For horse lovers, I find some saddle pads made of wool wonderful, just come here to have a look at http://www.welcomeget.com, kieffer, Germany DT are here too.
love the topic, I had fun reading it coz I’m a horse lover too but just a beginner one so right now I just keep on collection information that would be helpful for me in my new love.
HAAHAHA good photo i recently sold my horse overseas, the last thing i did on him was to ride him through the McDonalds drive through in a halter bareback at the international airport, right before i had to load him on the plane!!
This is awesome! I actually laughed out loud.
Somebody should send this one to Mcdonald’s. Might be the beginning of a great commercial!!
that’s beautiful – i remember when i got my first horse in the San Francisco Bay Area and realized it was legal to ride on the streets. Made getting to certain trail heads so easy (-:
Now i’m a farrier for 20 years – have a 100% success ratio, not one lame horse due to the methods of shoeing i use.
Everyone keep riding – keeps you healthy

I love it! Near my home I used to see two girls take their horses through the drive-thru at Dairy Queen. I even saw a man on horseback leading a pack horse in the middle of the city!
Just found your blog & am enjoying it very much! Love this pic!!
This is awesome…love it…But now I think its only fair that the horse eat as well…and how about this? I thought they were great, such a brilliant idea. They’re called “The Better Bucket”…it’s about time something like this was made…. Check out the short video clip at
Let me know if anyone has tried them and what you think!
What a cool photo! Who says horses are only running on the ranch? They can run you to McDonalds too!

Haha, I love this photo! I wanna go through a drive through with a horse. That would be pretty fun to see the employees reaction!
I think having a horse and buggy is the way to go. We may see much more of these types of pictures as our economy changes. We have a few and it is good to know we will always have some help around the farm if you can’t get gas. Yha horse power!
I’ve enjoyed reading your blog. You have some brilliant pictures and posts on there – especially loved the Romanian horse outside McDonalds.

Reblogged this on M. B. Scully and commented:
Can I go to Romania?
Here in the south of France we are seeing horses in the vineyards more and more often – a very welcome sight – though not that often on the roads yet…
